MOBILE, Ala. - Nov. 4, 2016 - PRLog -- Colin E. Kemmerly, a Social Security Disability and Veterans Law lawyer with Gardberg & Kemmerly, P.C. has recently published an open letter expressing concerns with a proposed rule put forth by the Social Security Administration in the September 9, 2016, Federal Register. The rule is titled "Revisions to Rules Regarding the Evaluation of Medical Evidence."

Mr Kemmerly has noted his objection to two proposed changes.  The first is a refusal to consider other governmental agencies decisions and the second is the elimination of the "Treating Physician Rule."

Mr. Kemmerly goes on to applaud the proposed rule's inclusion of APRNs and audiologists to the list of acceptable medical sources, but says it does not go far enough.

Ultimately, Mr. Kemmerly states that he believes the proposed changes regarding the treating physicians rule and the articulation of reasons to reject other governmental and non-governmental agency disability decisions "will increase the number of appeals" filed on behalf of claimants. He goes on to say that this in turn will "increase remands back to the agency." His final comments are that "as a practioner of both Social Security disability and Veterans disability, I vehemently oppose the revisions described in the proposed rule and ask for the Social Security Administration to consider the harm that said changes will have on Claimants."
